Judge bars lesser charges in abortion doc death

Postby SusieQ » Thu Jan 28, 2010 7:13 pm

He admits to the killing of Dr. Tiller. It has been proven that he took target practice. So far, all proof leads to pre-meditated. Hmm. Not looking so good for the guy.

A judge ruled Thursday that a jury cannot consider a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter for a man charged with murdering prominent Kansas abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.

Scott Roeder admitted in court earlier Thursday that he killed Tiller but has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault. His defense team had argued for the lesser charge, arguing that Roeder believed he had to kill Tiller to save the lives of unborn children.
